Thanks for stamping by. I have another project share to catch you up on.
The top card grew out of the scrap panel I had. I used a big floral stamp by Mama Elephant to create a background. I added a vellum piece, embossing in gold using the same floral stamp. I trimmed it out and added some natural jute with small stickers to complete my sentiment (welcome baby). This turned out to be a very elegant card for a mother to be.
The second card used various patterned papers, vellum and stickers. I also added balloons in the upper left for the elephant to hold that said "baby boy" but I could not find the photo to share (my apologies!). This card was for a cousin of mine and I had her invitation colors in mind when making the card (blues, greys, elephant). I like to add this type of extra personalization to a card. Makes for a special touch.
When I can, I try to add in embossing to my cards.
Do you have a "signature" technique you like to include on your cards? Leave a comment below.
Another post here to share a card series that I made for the Scrapbook Expo that came to my area. This year I ended up going by myself, but thought it would be fun to do the card swap workshop. Please earn from my n00b experience, I thought I would sign up the day up -- a big no-no -- it was sold out!! I tried to asked the instructor directly, but was also turned down. No luck, but at least I get to share this project with you!
